Todays Highlights

Nigeria is Open for More Investment and More Production

• SPE Heavy Oil Conference–Canada, 7:15 am – 5:00 pm, Stampede Park, Palomino Rooms

The International Market Theatre hosted a Nigerian presentation yesterday, with an invitation to Western companies, especially Canadian and Albertan corporations to consider investing in that country’s emerging energy industry. “Canadian expertise and technology is highly sought in Nigeria,” says Jean Gauthier, Deputy High Commissioner of Canada to Nigeria. “A few years ago it was a major stumbling block to have to Canadians foot the financing. A few Canadian companies are investing in Nigeria, but we’re always looking for more.” He states that the Nigerian government is focused on creating success for indigenous companies operating on their own and with international juniors. The opportunities can not only lead to potential profits in an emerging middle class economy, but also open the door to other African countries such as Ghana, Guinea, Lagos, and Sierra Leone. Emeka Ene, CEO of Olidata Energy Group and Xenergi says the oil and gas value chain in Nigeria has a large economic and commercial footprint. “Local content can be leveraged to be a magnet for FDI growth. That translates into GDP growth and ultimately stability for investors,” Ene says. “Nigeria is second to South Africa for growth. We focus on the three C’s…capacity building, capitalization, and convergence of policies and laws has positioned us as a place to invest.” The challenges too, are also obvious: The Petroleum Industrial Bill. The push is on to have the latest version of the bill submitted to the national assembly shortly. Delay could cause problems for investors. The Niger Delta Crisis and Amnesty Program. These have created problems for the Canadian Trade Commission Service. The goal is to create jobs for youth to help with socio-political stability. Eliminating corruption, boosting safety. The Nigerian and Canadian governments are working to vet companies for their track record,

accounting and performance before the ink is dry. The most stable companies are the ones who have followed regulatory and training compliances, and have good relationships with international companies. Long contract award and decision making processes. Decision making is slowed, but the Nigerian government is working to fast track processes and get projects moving. Despite delays and social issues, Wale Tinubu, group chief executive, Oando PLC, says it’s quite clear that the nation is doing very well with a GDP approaching 400B barrels a day. “We have a low debt to GDP ratio, which is rare for developing countries. There is plenty of scope for capital to come into the country. There is so much growth and prosperity but very little resource. When indigenous companies get together with foreign companies, the growth is phenomenal.” Continues on page 5

Oil Production and Prices Rising

But concern remains for heavy crude pricing and pipeline capacity For the oil industry, the results being experienced this year are what many have been waiting for. With first quarter results showing a positive increase for many companies, it appears that 2012 holds promise for much potential. Oilsands giant Suncor Energy recorded first quarter 2012 net earnings of $1.457 billion, compared to net earnings of $1.028 billion for the first quarter of 2011. Cenovus Energy’s cash flow for the quarter saw an increase of 30 per cent when compared with the same period a year earlier. Cash flow benefited from increased oil production and higher oil prices, as well as increased refining throughput and strong refining margins. Yet oilsands companies are still hoping to see a correction in the price they receive for their oil versus the benchmark price. “While oil prices are high, Canadian heavy crude is still priced at a discount,” said Brian Ferguson, Cenovus President and Chief Executive Officer. Canadian Oil Sands Ltd., the largest shareholder in Syncrude, says it faces a growing gap between the price it receives for its oil compared to the North American benchmark. The company is forecasting that this year its product will sell for about $10 a barrel less than West Texas Intermediate crude. Additional pipeline capacity is another issue many companies are hoping to see addressed in 2012. The need for expansion of existing oil pipeline capacity is at the forefront of challenges the oilsands industry is facing today, says the Canadian Energy Research Institute in its Oilsands Supply Costs and Development Projects report. “It is also important to stress how some excess capacity is crucial to be able to manage pipeline maintenance times and to provide flexibility for new market development,” the report says. Since the Keystone XL is in limbo and the Northern Gateway tied up in public hearings, 2012 promises to be the year of change and transformation for producers and shippers, the report outlines. With so much is going on, the Net Employment Outlook from Manpower Canada shows that the oil industry plans to beef up employment numbers. “Strengthened by an active outlook in the mining industry sector where efforts are underway in Alberta to develop the largest oil field outside the Middle East, the Net Employment Outlook for the upcoming quarter indicates a respectable hiring climate for the April to June time frame,” says Janis Sugar, Director of Marketing for Manpower Canada. According to BMO Economics, exploration activity continues to be strong, particularly in the Bakken light oil formation, bringing the possibility of record oil drilling in 2012.

Continues from cover page Beyond infrastructure investments, Tinubu says training facilities are also a great opportunity. “There is a big demand for training and certification within the country, so from an investment point of view there is a big opportunity. The goal is to get international certification in the country.” Continues from cover page Formed out of a joint venture of ABB and Encana, the software was created to target three pillars: Performance, affordability, and scalability. “The system uses a Polyhedra database which is 10 times faster than a typical SCADA database which depends on memory linked lists,” he says. “The ABB system based on event-driven updates, so the only data that is only transferred is what actually changes. Clients end up using less bandwidth, and the transfer quicker and more efficient, no matter what the size of system.” Cost is always a factor, especially for small companies that require the program, but not the scale. No problem, says Vaas. “The open software allows clients to upload around their needs,” he adds. “As business grows, the sys- Calvin Vaas of ABB Inc., presented a real-time tem grows with you. It’s very effective Very effective SCADA system at GPS which cuts down on maintenance, manpower, and boosts data speed. because with our real time database, you can add redundant and replicated servers and it doesn’t slow down.” In the event of a failover, Vaas says competitive systems could take over an hour to recover information. With SCADAvantage, a redundant server is being fed with the data at the same time, so recovery is within a matter of minutes. With several tiers of replication, data can also be fed into specific departments for immediate access including corporate servers. The budget is also reduced due to fewer people required to run the system and lower maintenance requirements. The plug and play model starts at around $40,000 without customization. “We find that most small clients are pretty satisfied with the comprehensiveness of the program,” Vaas says. “We can customize as needed including input and output telemetry, devices, security privileges, trend tracking, communication technology as well as tailored call out alarms.” Licensing and upgrading is easier too, with one protocol often loaded on unlimited devices. That means fewer servers to buy a centralized shared system. “Clients can add hundreds of devices in mere seconds, and the system can be upgraded by plugging in a disc, depending on the customization.”

Platts Roundtable Table Talk Brings up the Demand for Resources in Asia A recent round table at the Platts Oil Forum garnered some stunning revelations of the demand for resources in Asia, and some possible scenarios for the next three years. Platts editors John Kingston, Esa Ramasamy, Samantha Santa Maria from Platts, joined Greg Stringham, CAPP vice president, markets & oil sands, and Wenran Jiang, a senior advisor for Alberta Energy, to discuss a variety of issues—tolls, rail trends, and tight oil. But attention turned quickly to China, with stunning insights and projections from Jiang. When asked about China’s energy growth rate and how steep the slowdown really is, Jiang pointed toward trends in the past decade. “Oil has been very volatile,” he said. “Overall, the trend is going up 30 to 40 per cent of global demand of oil and growth coming from China and India is significant. What we don’t know is the micro-economics inside the country. We’re still seeing growing another 10 per cent. China has to sustain 7 to 8 per cent of growth and we are at a crisis already.” With 70 per cent of energy dependency coming from coal, 30 per cent from oil and only three per cent from natural gas, conditions are pointing to Canada for investment. The Keystone and Northern Gateway pipelines are under the watchful eye of the Chinese, who are eager to get involved. “The Chinese are watching this very closely,” stated Jiang, remarking on the pending go-ahead decisions from both Canadian and American governments, which is creating some compelling discussion. “They don’t want to take advantage of the wedge between Canada and the US. They just want to see the infrastructure being built and a speeding up or sustained commitment from either or both pipelines. If there are real options, what are they?” Since China is not a Canadian customer yet, but can be down the line, investments in infrastructure Powered by:

and production are moving at a steady pace. Jiang said it’s proactive planning for the country’s future. “We’ve got seven million undergraduates, 12 million graduate students coming into the market every year. We have to keep them working, but infrastructure building is a problem for China. It’s not sustainable. They want balanced approach to development. The government would rather see an unbalanced recovery than a balanced recession.” With 400 million Chinese citizens still living in rural areas, and a predicted 50 per cent of those moving into urban spaces in the next 20 years, middle class consumption will skyrocket, demanding everything from automobiles and appliances to air conditioning units and televisions. China’s technology and manufacturing sectors are also feeling the pinch. “What we have is an energy incentive,” Jiang cited. “China produces anywhere from 35 to 75 per cent of major home appliances around the world for the purpose of export. Our energy is a peak issue, but I don’t see one at all. By 2020, 50% of energy will have to come from alternative energy and fossil fuels. We’ll go into 2030 and still there will be no ceiling.” Stimulus versus infrastructure—the catch-22 of the industry, is a persistent subject. While China produces its own gas, and is moving into its own shale recovery, demand outweighs output hands down. “The question is that the terminals and plants are not moving fast enough. We have all the workers, but we lack the management and know-how.” Kingston posed the question of the perceived challenge of matching two different types of business practices between Asia and North America, especially if China comes to our backyard to play. “They do things differently with a different set of metrics and parameters,” suggested Kingston. Jiang agreed that the concerns and suspicions are understandable but cannot be backed by reality. “It’s a historical situation we are facing—China’s reforming and opening up,” he says. “When they come to Canada, they follow the rules here. It’s not that we have one monolithic China that operates under one state arm.” Alternatives to moving oil and gas to Asian markets are always on the table. Stringham said the slowdown of activity and Imperial Oil’s consideration in turning of the Dartmouth refinery into a terminal on Canada’s East Coast could add a challenge to shipping East. He cited the best alternative is probably Montreal, but after that the fine details make it more complicated. “Beyond that you have to build pipe or use rail or other things,” he says. “The easy part is the 300-400,000 barrels per day if you take a look at the Excel pipeline. If you have to look beyond that, you’ll have to look at the West Coast, which stretches your low hanging fruit.” The panel heralded Canadian gas producers for their speed of shutting in or curtailing wells quickly and efficiently, more so than their U.S. counterparts. Samantha Santa Maria noted there could be two potential reasons. “It could be due to the drilling commitments, but I would have to say one would be time lag, and I also wonder if it’s the old boy, ‘Wild West” mentality–very wildcatter,” she said. “Many of the people I’ve talked to think that the curtailing is just a blip in the road and they can weather the storm. On the subject of working within confines of infrastructure and competition, Stringham voiced the practical aspects of growth. “When it comes to competing, you know how the economics work,” he said. “You go into the empty capacity, then expansion, rather than building from the grassroots.” Whether product is refined locally or shipped down a line to domestic or foreign facilities is a persistent debate. Jiang mentioned that China, Japan and Korea could potentially purchase existing and stagnant refineries in Canada for transport, instead of shipping and ultimately refining it themselves. “If we have a good free trade agreement and the tariffs for upgrading are good, then we can have China’s private sector, who want to come to North America or Canada, buy them and have upstream supply for downstream feed. Buy or build, they are doing feasibility studies, but it’s not possible yet.” Stringham commented that this may work and that refining locally may not be the right answer, due to the variances of state/provincial and national environmental and industrial specifications, depending on the country. “One of the real keys is if you make gas that matches the specifications for certain places, you might find all of a sudden, they don’t need that specific diesel, and then you have to look to other areas to sell it. If you’re looking at moving into China, do you look at moving refined products? There is a balance on how local or international you can be. I don’t think there is a clear answer on that.”

Aquatech Introduces SMARTMOD™ Modular Evaporator Technology for Oil Sands Market Aquatech, a leader in water purification technology for the industrial and infrastructure markets, will unveil its SMARTMOD™ modular evaporator technology for the Oil Sands market at Booth # 7007, Halls D, E. Modular, flexible and redeployable, SMARTMOD is the lowest CAPEX and life cycle cost evaporator system available today. It utilizes vertical tube falling film evaporator design, a proven technology for treating difficult produced water sources. Benefits of SMARTMOD over conventional evaporator systems include 10% lower power consumption. Its multiple section design ensures ASME distillate quality, and on-line washing allows for continuous distillate production at >70% of design capacity during washing. SMARTMOD is also engineered to minimize field installation labor and costs. With its dramatically reduced center of mass and evaporator weight, the SMARTMOD module and vessels eliminate the need for building a large evaporator building or expensive foundation labor and materials. Its innovative design also reduces freight costs for transportation of the complete system to site. “Aquatech is pleased to introduce this new evaporator design, which adds to our industry-leading portfolio of solutions for oil & gas producers and provides our clients with a unique solution to treat and reuse their produced water. We see a bright future with SMARTMODT in the Oil Sands market and believe that this technology will further expand our already successful global footprint in produced water treatment,” said Alan R. Daza, Vice President of Sales & Business Development for Aquatech. SAGD (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) is an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technology for producing heavy crude oil and bitumen. It is an advanced form of steam stimulation where high pressure steam is injected into the formation, heating the bitumen in the formation, which lowers its viscosity and allows the mixture of bitumen and water from condensed steam to be pumped out. The liquid that is pumped to the surface is a mixture of oil and water. The mixture is separated to a predominantly oil and water fractions in the de-oiling process. The water fraction (or Produced Water) is sent to the Aquatech system for treatment and reuse in the facility. In addition to the evaporator technology, Aquatech has supplied conventional systems that include Walnut Shell Filters, Warm Lime Softening, Afterfilters and Ion Exchange softening. Once purified, the produced water is used as feed to the boiler for steam generation and injected into the formation, and the cycle continues.

“Aquatech’s evaporator systems like SMARTMOD are an excellent fit for the Oil Sands market. Whether it’s for Produced Water or Boiler Blowdown treatment, the SMARTMOD provides high distillate purity, high continuous distillate production availability and significant reduction in field installation costs of approximately 75%,” Daza noted.

Volant Casing Running Tool - External (CRTe) The 2012 Global Petroleum Show in Calgary will mark the product launch for Volant’s first fully mechanical external grip casing running tool (CRTe). The CRTe brings the advantages of our compact robust internal grip equipment to applications that require larger hoisting loads and torsional capacity than is currently available with our CRTi equipment. The initial product release will enable top drive-equipped rigs to engage 4 ½” to 5 ½” casing to apply hoisting loads up to 500 tons*, torsion up to 40,000 ft-lbs*, and compression up to 100 tons*. The CRTe’s modular architecture is scalable, allowing future hoist, torsion, and diameter capacity requirements to be driven by market demand. The CRTe is a fully mechanical tool, relying upon the same gripping technology used in Volant’s well-proven internal grip CRTi family of casing running tools. In less than four years since product launch, our internal grip tools have run more than 100 million feet of casing at locations around the world. The main difference between the CRTi and CRTe tools is that gripping force enabling hoisting, pull-down and torsion is applied externally rather than to the internal surface of the casing. Tool function, as experienced by the driller, remains identical set down and turn clockwise to engage; set down and turn counter clockwise to disengage. Volant’s efficient design philosophy has delivered another compact, lightweight tool. With substantial load capacity, length as short as 71 inches (180 cm), and weight as low as 1700 lbs (770 kg), the CRTe is positioned to become the industry standard for handling heavy strings in deep wells, even if rotation and circulation are not required. Compact size and modest weight delivers exceptional mobilization efficiency. The CRTe’s modular design maximizes tool utility for a wide range of applications. The ‘Drive Head’ module connects the top drive quill to the ‘Gripping Module’, activates gripping mechanism, and transfers hoist and torsion loads. The Gripping Module transfers load to the outside of the pipe and is configurable to grip a range of casing sizes limited only to a module-specific maximum. Options are available to accommodate a range of application requirements. The Drive Head can be ordered with 6 inches of axial ‘float’ to reduce the chance of casing thread damage during stabbing and make-up, or without float to minimize overall tool length. The Gripping Module can be specified with a maximum diameter to suit either 5 ½” or 7 ¾” casing and both can be fitted with dies and seal elements to accommodate casing sizes down to 4 ½”. Price and delivery information will be available during the product launch in Calgary at the Global Petroleum Show • *CRTe Design Capacities: • Hoisting 500 tons (or more) • Torque 40,000 ft-lb • Compression 100 tons • Approx. Weight 1,800 lbs – 2,500 lbs (depends on option setup and casing size) • Approx. Length 71 in – 90 in (depends on option setup) Field testing and design verification testing is ongoing. Certified capacities may differ from those described above, as final capacities are likely to be even greater. Interested parties are invited to speak with Volant Sales personnel to discuss the new CRTe and target applications.

Moving the Wireless Wellhead from Monitoring to Monitoring and Control Over the past five years there has been a marked acceptance of the use of Wireless Sensor Networks to monitor wellheads and provide critical operations data to maintenance staff as well as data for performance analysis and reports. Over the same period many operators have been installing more and more valves at the wellhead for safety and emissions control. The missing link for many of these installations has been the ability to provide not only monitoring at these remote, often disparate, locations but to provide control capabilities, particularly of the sales valve, that would lead to increased operating efficiencies as well as improved diagnostics. One solution has been to provide control of the pneumatic valves through either line power or solar power on site. These solutions are often costly and difficult to maintain with many of them not meeting the hazardous certification requirements of the wellheads. There have been no products or solutions that could offer control capabilities in the remote locations that met the certification requirements at the same time as providing simple, continuous control. Figure 1 Accutech VC10 Valve Controller In a pointed effort to address this need Schneider Electric - Telemetry & Remote SCADA Solutions, designed and developed the Accutech VC10 Valve Controller. It is a wireless, battery-powered controller for pneumatic valves that is used to control gas flow or shut down wells. In trials, it has been used to shut down valves on a rod pump oil well, for motor valve control on intermitter gas wells or wells with plunger lift. It completely replaces the conventional systems of wireless I/O radios located in enclosures and powered by a solar panel, battery and battery charger. These systems were often complex, prone to breakdown, and were often only rated for Class I, Division 2 hazardous environments when they were located on wellheads that were classified Division 1. With a single unit, the VC10 provides Class I Division 1 control at the wellhead resulting in the first ever fully automated wireless wellhead. The VC10’s primary function is to actuate a pneumatic valve by controlling pressure to and from the valve supply line. The line pressure is controlled by actuating a two-way latching 12V solenoid using progressive pulse control. The solenoid can either vent the control line pressure to close the valve or apply pressure to the pneumatic valve through the control line to open the valve. The integrated pressure sensor can confirm whether the control line is pressurised or not and automatically re-tries the actuation if necessary. By using the shortest possible pulse for solenoid actuation and the feed-back mechanism of the integrated pressure sensor, the unit is able to operate for extended periods and is capable of 50,000 actuations before a battery change is required.

Figure 2 Wireless Wellhead Included in the VC10 are two digital inputs, the first of which includes a counter function for monitoring plunger arrival with the second configured for any discreet input application including sand erosion monitor or proximity sensors. The entire all-in-one unit is contained in a Class I Division 1, explosion-proof housing. Consider the example of a wellhead using plunger lift. The sales valve is closed to allow pressure in the well to build. The wireless casing and tubing pressure sensors (GP10 wireless sensors) are monitored by a base radio and local remote terminal units (RTUs). When enough pressure is built up, the RTU tells the VC10 to actuate the solenoid valve which pressurises the control line to the sales valve

18 Official Show Daily 2012

causing it to open. With an integrated pressure sensor the VC10 confirms the control line is pressurised, and if not, automatically retries the actuation. The well begins flowing with a mixture of gas and liquid brought to the surface with the plunger; its arrival is sensed by the plunger arrival sensor in the VC10 and gas continues to flow until pressure drops below optimum flow conditions. Once the RTU senses the drop in pressure it tells the VC10 to shut-in the well by actuating the solenoid valve. The control line connected to the sales vale is vented causing it to close. With its integrated pressure sensor the VC10 confirms the control line is closed and re-tries if necessary. Combined with the GP10 wireless pressure sensors, the VC10 creates a completely autonomous wireless well-head. By far the most tangible benefit of the VC10 system is simplicity. Where before operators had to worry about installing line power or maintaining complex systems of solar and battery power, the VC10 is designed with energy management as a prime goal and with the capability of 50,000 actuations before battery replacement is required, provides an exceptionally long maintenance free period. Since the VC10 is an all-in-one unit, installation costs are significantly reduced with a single unit replacing what was once I/O radios, enclosure, mounting pole, solar panels, battery and battery charger. Many well operators are looking to restrict the amount of wiring around the well-head and associated separators, tanks and flow measurement equipment found at a distance to the pad. The only physical process connections for the VC10 are the line in and line out pressure connections. With minimal physical connections the VC10 is easy to install and can be installed repeatedly for applications on multi-well pads. The VC10 also provides benefits in efficiency. The integrated arrival sensor eliminates the need for an additional discrete input counter with the second digital input allowing for enhanced monitoring and diagnostics of the wellhead. With detailed information on any error that has occurred, plus the ability to verify that the control line is pressurised or not, and therefore operating correctly, greatly increases the operators diagnostic capabilities. Verification of control line pressurisation also makes for more efficient use of the battery and combined with its patent pending ultra low-power electronics allows the VC10 to provide years of maintenance free operation on a single battery pack. In the event the battery does need replacing, it requires the simple change of the 4 D-cell lithium battery pack. While the VC10 provides significant improvements in simplicity and efficiency, its most unique feature is the intrinsic safety of the solenoid and the explosion-proof electronic technologies that allow it to be classified for Class I Division 1 hazardous environments. While offering a reduced cost to other installations, the VC10 meets the highest classification of hazardous environments. The VC10 is part of the Accutech product offering and has its own data window within the Accutech Manager that allows for complete monitoring of the field unit operation and for local or remote configuration. Until recently, autonomously-powered wireless sales valve control was a distant possibility. The Accutech VC10 valve controller has brought that possibility into reality by creating the capability for the first completely autonomous wireless wellhead. Bringing battery-powered wireless control to the wellhead promises to significantly change the level of control and efficiency to the innumerable remote installations in the industry. Schneider Electric, Telemetry & Remote SCADA Solutions, is a global supplier of remote automation solutions for SCADA systems in oil and gas, water and electrical utilities applications. Solution components include Accutech wireless instrumentation, SCADAPack Smart RTUs, Trio long-range data radios, and ClearSCADA enterprise software. All products are engineered to operate in harsh, unattended environments delivering higher productivity and efficiency while reducing operational costs across a wide area infrastructure.
